Abstract

There are many cases in daily life and in the workplace which pose a decision problem. Some of them involve picking the best from among multiple available alternatives. However, no single alternative works best for all performance attributes. This research proposes a multiple attribute decision making (MADM) method, grey relational analysis (GRA), for solving this kind of problem. A case, facility layout design problem, which has been analyzed by data envelopment analysis (DEA), was also analyzed using the GRA procedure, in order to illustrate the use of GRA. In the case 18 alternative layouts and 6 performance attributes were considered. For the case examined, the results of comparisons show that GRA is efficient for solving MADM problem.
